"Please Turn On Volume"
Another AB roll here. This time it's made by the Vista people, who do all of those stock footage scenes scattered throughout the archive. But watching this, except for one brief scene where I recognized a restaraunt sign. This film is about the shupping business in San Francisco. It has lots of great scenes of different products being transported to and fro from ships, including bananas, cars and wheat. There's also some great shots of SF itself. Nice, of course there's plenty of blackness, more than usual it looks like. Plus there's a great "this is a sound film" leader at the beginning that I've mever seen before! All in all, pretty good.
